Josh Dotson has been practicing law for more than seven years – with Flaherty since 2011. His emphasis is product litigation and workplace liability, including deliberate intent law.

“I am dedicated to going the extra mile to make the right decisions up front and finding the solution that best fits the problem for the client.”

Josh practices often in Federal Court and is frequently asked to evaluate cases involving complex medical issues. In addition, he has also been involved in successful representation in front of the West Virginia Supreme Court – both briefing and oral argument.

Outside of the office, Josh enjoys trail running, hiking, cycling and the occasional spin on a motorbike.
